Starward Whisky Masterclass

Starward’s Melbourne Whisky Masterclass: An in depth tour of the production facility and bond store with a guided whisky tasting.



About this Event






We're made in Melbourne. Not the outback. Or a sunshine-soaked beach. Melbourne is the foodie capital of Australia, full of casual brilliance. Here, we ditch the airs and graces and focus on flavour instead – making award-winning whiskies a stone’s throw from the CBD.

This 90 minute tour of our working distillery walks you through how we mash, ferment, distil and age our whisky. Tour the production floor in detail and the bond store.

We source all our whisky ingredients from just a day's drive away, from the Australian barley through to the locally sourced red wine barrels we mature in (for the juiciest of flavours). Everything converges into this one humble distillery and we’re excited to show it all to you.

Included in the Masterclass in an in-depth guided tasting of 5 of our fantastic whiskies. As a bona fide distillery speciality, you'll be able to buy any of our whiskies with discount of 10% off.

Please note:

* Make sure you wear closed-toed shoes; it's a must to access our working distillery floor because of health and safety regulations.

* We need a working days’ notice if you want to change your tour time - we are not able to accept phone calls on the day. Please instead email events@starward.com.au

* Due to COVID safety regulations we ask that all guests bring and wear a mask, stay 1.5metres apart at all times and sanitise their hands-on entry.

FAQs

Is there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the distillery and tour?

You can take the tour at any age, BUT if you're under 18s strictly no tasting and you must be accompanied by a guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for the Starward distillery?
